Fun While It Lasted is the whirlwind story of Bruce McNall's life as a player. McNall started in the ancient coin business. Soon, he branched out into horse racing, movies (The Fabulous Baker Boys), and major league sports as owner of the L.A. Kings hockey team. McNall was the toast of Los Angeles, attending glamorous parties, and living the life of a celebrity. Eventually, however, he had to borrow huge amounts of money, and ultimately his empire collapsed amid charges of fraud and deception. He was sent to prison for admittedly bilking banks out of more than $200 million.

Here is the tale of how McNall convinced Wayne Gretzky to play for his Kings; how he helped Merrill Lynch start a coin fund that eventually lost millions of dollars; how he played fast and loose in Hollywood. McNall's memoir is a compelling look at life at the top, and how hard and fast one can fall.
